How to file a complaint on google DMCA if your content is copied

Many bloggers especially the beginners copy the content from other sites and paste them on their blogs. The posts from my blog too were copied by other bloggers. This is the reason why i m writing this post. Today i filed a complaint to the Google DMCA for the same reason and for removing links from the Google search result. This service provided by Google is very beneficial for the real owners of a site because we know how difficult it is to make a blog post. And it is frustrating to see others  copying the content and decreasing our traffics. This is not real blogging. So just avoid copying others content and their hard work and skills.

It may happen to your blog post as well. So you can check this from several sites or else even manually from Google  If you find any site with your content copied and pasted on it, then you can file a complaint to google DMCA. Google will remove the post link of those who copied your content from the google search result. And your blog traffics will come back to you.
